Diseases Our Experts Treats:

  • Acute Liver Failure: It is a rapid deterioration of liver function within days or weeks. It results from various causes, like hepatitis or drug overdose. Symptoms include jaundice, confusion, and bleeding. Prompt medical intervention, including a potential liver transplant, is crucial for survival.
  • Chronic Liver Disease: It involves long-term damage to the liver, often from conditions like hepatitis, alcoholism, or fatty liver. It can progress to cirrhosis, leading to liver failure. Symptoms may include fatigue, jaundice, and fluid retention. Management focuses on addressing underlying causes and supportive care.
  • Liver Cirrhosis: It is advanced scarring of the liver due to chronic injury, often from alcohol abuse, hepatitis, or fatty liver. It leads to impaired liver function, causing symptoms like jaundice, swelling, and confusion. Treatment aims to manage complications, address underlying causes, and support liver health. In severe cases, a liver transplant may be necessary.
  • Chronic pancreatitis: It is long-term inflammation of the pancreas, often from alcohol abuse or other factors. It leads to digestive issues, pain, and weight loss. Management includes lifestyle changes, pain relief, and enzyme replacement. Severe cases may require surgery or interventions to address complications.
  • Gallstone Disease: It involves the formation of hard particles in the gallbladder. It can cause abdominal pain, nausea, and jaundice. Treatment ranges from dietary changes to surgical removal of the gallbladder. In severe cases, complications like pancreatitis may require immediate medical attention.

Top Surgeries Performed by Our Experts:

We are committed to providing patients with the most advanced and effective treatment options for gastrointestinal conditions. These include:

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: UGI is a medical procedure using a flexible tube with a camera to examine the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum. It helps diagnose conditions like ulcers, reflux, and tumors. Biopsies can be taken for further evaluation. UGI endoscopy aids in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.
  • Colonoscopy: It is a medical procedure using a flexible tube with a camera to examine the colon and rectum. It helps diagnose conditions like colorectal cancer, polyps, and inflammatory bowel disease. Biopsies can be taken for further evaluation. Regular colonoscopies are crucial for early detection and prevention of colorectal diseases.
  • Capsule Endoscopy: It is a non-invasive procedure using a small, swallowable camera capsule to capture images of the digestive tract. It provides detailed views of the small intestine, aiding in diagnosing conditions like Crohn's disease or small bowel tumors. The capsule passes naturally and the images are analyzed for evaluation.
  • Liver Biopsy: It is a diagnostic procedure to obtain a small sample of liver tissue for examination. It helps diagnose liver conditions, assess liver damage, and monitor treatment effectiveness. The sample is analyzed under a microscope, providing valuable insights into liver health.
  • Obesity Treatment: These involve a multidisciplinary approach. It includes diet modification, regular exercise, behavioral changes, and, in some cases, medication or surgical intervention. Personalized plans aim to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, improve overall health, and reduce obesity-related complications.

FAQ

Gastrosciences, also known as Gastroenterology, is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders related to the digestive system. This includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas.

Gastrosciences addresses a wide range of conditions, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), peptic ulcers, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), liver diseases (such as hepatitis and cirrhosis), pancreatic disorders, and gastrointestinal cancers.

Common diagnostic procedures in Gastrosciences include endoscopy, colonoscopy, upper gastrointestinal series, abdominal ultrasound, CT scans, and various blood tests to assess liver function and detect specific markers associated with gastrointestinal conditions.

You should consider seeing a Gastrosciences specialist if you experience symptoms like chronic abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea or constipation, blood in stool, unexplained weight loss, heartburn or acid reflux, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), or any other digestive-related concerns.

Nutrition plays a crucial role in Gastrosciences. Gastroenterologists often work closely with dietitians to develop dietary plans for patients with specific digestive conditions. This may involve making dietary recommendations to manage conditions like celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, or liver disorders.
